OK, so I have to admit that I enjoyed the baseball games I've been watching for the past few days (even though I didn't really care who won). It's hard to avoid watching sports when you're surrounded by sports people.
I spent the last couple of days in Houston hanging out with Andy Biggs, his wife Lesley, Caroline, and James. After spending a few nights working hard on the Wetpixel DEMA update, it was really nice to have some time to just hang out without any responsibilities. I've also discovered that I really like retired racing greyhounds: no smell, no hair, and a mellow personality! Andy's dog, Jax, is great.
After going out to have dinner at Benjy's (good food!), Caroline gave me another acupunture/acupressure treatment, sticking six needles into me in various locations. I like getting treatments from her, although they might be more effective if I had some kind of chronic problem I wanted fixed; I'm generally a pretty stable guy. The ending massage is definitely my favorite part. At least one of my friends hates massages -- an opinion I can't even begin to imagine. I just spent the last couple of hours on one of Cindy's electric massage chair thingies. :) [see some photos]
